Good review Tom. I'll be getting this.

It's just annoying that you have this Prince of Persia Character that somehow has an American accent. Are they afraid that a foreign accent will put people off?

Awesome review!

The voice wouldn't be no issue for me as I'm also getting this game but after christmas, say boxing day :) Going for the steelbook edition the decor on that steelbook is bloody great, the best looking limited edition I have seen this year beside the Gears 2 steelbook like IMO

What a missed opportunity and almost inexcusable oversite to not use the voice actor who was the prince in the sands triology. The guy who voices Drake is all wrong for this charactor. Also, it's bewildering that Ubi didn't get the connecton or tone right between the prince and elka down as this was also an issue in the sands sequels by many people.

The Sands games are some of the best, with the first being classic, though the Warrior Within was my favorite. Alot of people didnt like the darker tone. I loved it and though it was a perfect direction to take the series. a perfect game sans themusic selection. The Island of time is a twisted place and being able to go from past to present time is brilliant. Its the Empire Strikes back of the series. Where I thought the series went off the rails is with the Two Thrones. The enviornments ore evolved gameplay were nowhere as interesting and the relationship between the Prince and Farah was cold and flat compared to Sands. So disappointing.

With that said, I cant wait to pick up this game. I take all the POP I can get, esspecially if it has elements of ICO and Okami both in design and gameplay, two my all time favs as well.

its sad to see another classic game fall to modern greed and idiocy. this game isnt bad but why is it a prince of Persia game when it has NOTHING to do with the price of Persia??? i'd have preferred to have this game be its own title. but since it "supposed" to be a POP series game it doesn't live up to any of the expectations i would have for one. all of the original points of the game (platforming, lots of dying and having good character structure) have been pissed on.

this game is a traveshamockery of PoP games, I bought it from best buy on dec 2, I was excited to play it but quickly found it to be extremely repetitive and boring, there is no killing, seldom one on one fights which are very slow moving, and the boss fights are terrible especially against the concubine. the only positive are the graphics, this game is a total rip off easily the biggest regret I have of games i've purchased, don't waste your time.
